Wendi’s Word: Stay to the right

With my 2-year-old vocalizing to get out of the meat department in the grocery store, I turned the cart to the right. I understood. He needed to move and see something different. I could have gone to the left, going into the produce but here I was in the bakery section teasing my son and […]

Wendi’s Word: Perils of parenting

Thud. Five seconds of silence. Slam. Another five seconds of silence. Then, rattling of metal against metal as our 2-year-old son shakes the baby gate and speaks his native toddler tongue. It was time, wasn’t it for the escape from the crib to officially begin. He had escaped many months ago, but I don’t think […]

Wendi’s Word: Fresh start

Ah, here we are again. The beginning of the year – a time to start fresh and make goals for the new year. Maybe I should begin with goals I probably will never make or if I made them they would easier be broken like going to a bookstore. Or buying a book once all […]

Wendi’s Word: Many sides to story

Being a mom, I pay more attention to the mom jokes like hiding in the bathroom away from children so a favorite candy bar can’t be sniffed out before said mom gets a chance to devour it. I used to laugh at the videos parents posted of tiny hands reaching under the door. I don’t […]

Wendi’s Word: Just do it

Wendi’s Word: Decade at CNews

It’s Monday and the office is humming with activity as it is deadline and we are getting this week’s edition ready for you.

Wendi’s Word: Dog days of fall

A beautiful beginning to fall – leaves are changing colors, Halloween candy and decorations are filling the store shelves and the new season was met with…very warm 80 degree days. It prompted me to sing: nn the first day of fall, Mother Nature gave to me, a sunny, warm ride to Clarkston’s football game in […]

Home again: A column by Wendi Reardon Price

You may or may not have gone to a Clarkston home football game. This is what happens at a home football game – the community fills the stands to cheer on their football team, their cheerleading team, their dance team and their marching band. The excitement can be felt from the stands starting from the […]

Wendi’s Word: Adventurous tot

Each day is a new adventure with a 20-month-old son who is no longer an infant and just beginning the toddler stage. JD’s latest adventure takes him to the Detroit Zoo.
